Hawkdun Rise vineyard is small and was planted in 1994, predominantly Pinot Noir with a small amount of Gewürztraminer. The scale of the vineyard is just enough for the couple to manage “with a little help from my friends,” says John.

The Hawkdun Rise philosophy is quality rather than quantity and this has paid off with the vineyard’s 2005 signature HR Pinot Noir – the first vintage produced under John and Suzanne’s guidance – winning a silver medal in the 2007 Air New Zealand Wine Awards. A Gold Medal in the same awards followed this for their 2006 HR Pinot Noir.
